    Nestled among the trees, this little retreat is a perfect fairy hideaway. After crossing the Chip and Dale bridge, there is nothing but peace and quiet for him to enjoy. The clay table and chairs set on the stone patio provides a place to enjoy a cup of tea while gazing out over the gardens. The gold fine leaf sedum contrasts dramatically with the cottage, while the pink hypoestes and dianthus complement it perfectly. The blue ageratum (hydrangea) in the background brings out the roof color. The cuphea resembles a lilac or other flowering shrub planted along the rattan fence.

    The little blue cottage is accented by blue flowering campanula and ageratum. Other plants with gray-blue foliage adding to the cool, calm color scheme include Blue Fescue grass, dianthus and lampranthus. A rosemary 'tree' adds height and also some fragrance. The irish moss will cover the ground and make a soft, cushiony lawn. Some mowing required.

    This sunny yellow cottage nestled amongst the rocks is a cheery spot for fairies to hang out. Using a bark mulch and planting lots of 'shrubs' keeps the maintenance to a minimum because fairies really don't like to weed. We used dwarf barberry and evergreens, and cuphea around the house. A blue-eyed grass, Drunkard's Dream, delosperma (iceplant), hens and chicks and other succulents fill in around the rocks. A rosemary-tree adds a spot of shade.

Stately potted lemon cypress stand tall at the top of the curved staircases. Ivy covered walls surround a stone arch doorway below, which any curious fairy will want to enter to find what secrets lie within.
